Anyone running cauldron and not subscribed to the dev ML, should read these instructions:

I'm running Mageia 2 now and wanna join Cauldron. Can I follow those instructions to update?

In fact, I changed my package repos from 2 to cauldron yesterday, and ran "urpmi --auto-update", which prompted me whether I wanted to install all dependent 68 packages. I answered yes, but urpmi just successfully installed 2 packages (meta-task and aria2) and then failed with the following message:
rpmlib(X-CheckUnifiedSystemdir) 被 filesystem-2.1.9-18.mga3.i586 所需要

which, when translated into English, is:
rpmlib(X-CheckUnifiedSystemdir) is needed by filesystem-2.1.9-18.mga3.i586

I see the first instruction from the Wiki page say "Some packages will fail!", and I find there are the other 66 rpms in my /var/cache/urpmi/rpms/, so things seem OK? Can I just go ahead and follow the next instructions?? Thanks.

The entire update process for my "urpmi --auto-update" yesterday is attached below:

Perhaps, but I'm not a technical expert. It is important to remember that this process is still being tested. (That's what cauldron is for.) The instructions were written, I think, assuming that the user was already running a cauldron system. There are probably other issues that will have to be addressed when a procedure is developed for a distro upgrade to Mageia 3.

Personally, I would not try a distro upgrade at this time, but if you are adventurous and do decide to proceed, make sure that all of your important data is fully backed up, since you could end up having to re-install, and note the comment in item 4. of the instructions, since a newer kernel will be installed as part of the update to cauldron.

For a more informed answer, you should ask in the dev ML, where Colin Guthrie (the dev handling UsrMove) has been very quick to respond to questions.

Before trying cauldron, be sure to read:

After reading the relevant thread in the dev-ML I decided to wait until Alpha1 and do a fresh installation of Cauldron from the Alpha iso.
Although I understand Colin's instructions I regard the current state of Cauldron (especially the UsrMove issue) as more "testing" than the usual Cauldron, comparable to the situation when systemd was introduced. As I can't help coding anyway it may be too early to jump into the pool.

For anyone interested in the reasons for UsrMove and some discussion on how it was developed, Colin has an article on his blog:

Followed Colins' manual, and it worked out well on my laptop.
No errors occurred whatsoever.

I decided to do an experiment first before I actually took the risk of destroying my Mageia 2 system. So I installed a whole new Mageia 2 system on a spare partition and applied all package updates. Then I changed my package repos to cauldron, and followed the instructions on the Wiki page. Everything was fine until I tried to install the remaining updates after reboot. "urpmi --auto-update" failed with the same message as I said earlier in this thread. That made me decide to keep staying on Mageia 2.

I found the same as jtmh when trying to go from 2 to Cauldron.
Following the instructions on a Cauldron install did work.

Am I correct in thinking that a clean new install
of Cauldron will use this new file structure?

It should but wait a bit for my report on upgrading Mageia2 to Cauldron which is under way.

I'll wait a bit.

FWIW My Cauldron test system features a removable, replaceable
hard drive system. I can A <-> B <-> C <-> X hard drives with ease.
I've got a stack of'em. One of those removable drives is my "Cauldron"
drive. To be erased, blown up, miscoded and subjected to all sorts of
software miscreadence at any time.

I do a clean install of Cauldron at least once a month just to make
sure it does a clean install from a zeroed out HD.

Thanks for all your help.

Upgrade of Mageia2 to Cauldron done.
I first followed the steps in the wiki and ran into the rpmlib(X-CheckUnifiedSystemdir) error.

Next I updated the kernel and ran
Code: Select all
dracut -f -a convertfs
Updating still produced the same error.
Next I did
Code: Select all
urpmi --allow-force rpm
67 packages where upgraded after answering Y .
Another call of
Code: Select all
urpmi --auto-u
updated my system to current Cauldron.

Off topic but why in blue blazes is Frozen-Bubbles an arcade game a dependency of rpm?
I think I'll file a bug report on that tomorrow.

A side question: How do you do the Cauldron install, do you use the boot.iso from the cauldron ftp tree and do a net install?
Followed by the question: if so, would such an installation via boot.iso already include the UsrMove?

1st I always update my local ( ftp ) repo from mirrors.kernel.org
just before I do a new install. If the repo update takes
more then a minute I rsync update again. I'm always using
the latest boot.iso. And today that boot.iso is dated
07/20/12. And I agree "would such an installation via
boot.iso already include the UsrMove?"

Install is always start from scratch, overwrite everything,
not an update.

As I have a broadband connection and a very reliable mirror syncing every 2 hours I am used to the net-install (never had issues) and I use to use the boot.iso as well. Thanks for responding to that.
As you see from my question: I am too lazy to go through the conversion ordeal (couldn't help Colin anyway), so the main question still stands.

Maybe somebody else knows. Maybe I just take the risc and will see by myself. :)

General thought:
After this UsrMove a lot of HowTos and documentations have to be edited.... :(
And it needs careful and detailed information when the release will come.

I think that the important updates for a clean install are those to stage2 and drakx, which are dated 24th July. I have an install under-way now, which seems to be going smoothly. Prior to those updates an install aborted when package installation began with the error message about the filesystem. I'll post when the installation is completed - but my cauldron box is old and slow - like me :)

Installation completed successfully and rebooted, eventually, into Gnome 3 fallback mode.

The new filesystem seems to have been set up successfully - /bin, /sbin and /lib are all symlinks to the appropriate directories in /usr.
